    I loved 300 but I'm not sure it needs a sequel. And Dilios wasn't exactly the coolest character. He's no Leonidas.

    So what do you all think of a sequel? Yay or Nay?

    I thought "Nay" of the original 300. A sequel definitely would be just as bad.

    All it was was fancy camera work and random battles. There was next to NO character development and when people got killed you really didn't care.

    I guess it was supposed to be an epic. I think they overdid it to the max and instead ended up with an epic fail.

    I have zero interest in seeing a sequel/prequel or whatever it would be.

    It wasn't trying to be deep though. It was attempting to be artistic in ways people thought weren't possible- that's the reason it was a digital backlot.

    Also to say the characters were shallow ignores the whole Sparta subplot, where the wife is revealed to be powerful and complex.

    I'm rather interested. I'm assuming this one would be more like the non-combat half. The dialogue was fairly well put together, and I'm interested to see how the movie comes together in terms of sfx without battle and gore.

    I thought 300 was a good movie for what it was supposed to be... just an action flick. Although I got smashed and went with this girl to it and fell asleep within the first 15 minutes, it wasn't because it was boring... it was cuz I was SMASHED... If you know the history of the spartans and the way they fought, and even the battle of 300, which wasn't actually 300 spartans, the movie just added more drama to the epic battle.

    What actually happened was the spartans along with a couple other cities sent 1000 or so soldiers to hell's gates, just like in the movie. They actually did give king xerxes a scare because they fought so well. They eventually died in the end just like in the movie, but they gave the greeks enough time to assemble a massive naval fleet that not only defeated the persians on their own land, but took over part of persia and broke up xerxes empire.

    Knowing that story, how much of a plot were they supposed to have in the movie??? BTW I would still say no to a sequal... LOL

    It sounds like an okay idea but the fact that it would be different from the novel might ruin the franchise.

    I am a fan of the 300 movie, I would defenitely watch the sequel if they ever decide to make one. I think it could actually get a lot of interest. It would probably surprise a lot of people just like 300 did when he first came out at the movie theaters.

    So I'm defenitly yay for the sequel.

    I loved 300 and would be interested in seeing how the sequel turns out, so that's a yay for me.

    I thought 300 was a pretty awesome movie. I don't think it needs a sequel, but I'll check it out for sure.
